Uber is a service that enables you to book a car service with the tap of your finger on your smartphone or mobile device. While normally you have to pay to ride with Uber, with this latest promotion, you could actually win up $5,000 for taking a ride!


If you still haven’t tried Uber yet, you can get a $20 credit on your first ride when you sign up here.

Calling all New York City entrepreneurs: on Thursday, October 13, with just a tap, you could get 7 minutes to pitch your startup idea to an investor for the chance to win up to $5,000 from First Round Capital.

POOL Pitch guarantees that you’ll get the undivided attention of that one VC you could only dream about sharing a ride with. Think of it like an elevator pitch, but in an Uber.

For those select entrepreneurs invited to the exclusive cocktail event that evening with participating VCs, come to the event prepared with your pitch. 3 entrepreneurs will be selected to pitch onstage in front of a small panel of investors, and the entrepreneur with the winning pitch will receive $5,000 from First Round Capital. (The second and third prize winners will receive $3,000 and $2,000, respectively.)



Bottom Line:

While this latest promotion won’t be for everyone, if you do have a great startup idea, then you may want to request a “POOL Pitch” ride so you’ll be able to pitch your idea and possibly win $5,000.

If you still haven’t tried Uber yet, you can get a $20 credit on your first ride when you sign up here.
